Olive Films, a small Chicago-based company, is released Roger Corman’s controversial 1967 film The Trip on Blu-ray and DVD.
The Trip looks at drug use, free love and spirituality in a way that made it a counterculture icon – especially coming out the same year as Jimi Hendrix’s Are You Experienced album. Between the two, they marked an initial high point in psychedelia.
Written by Jack Nicholson and directed by Roger Corman, The Trip stars Peter Fonda and Susan Strasberg and introduced unique elements – like strobe lights synchronized to the camera’s frame rates – to create the characters’ hallucinations in camera.
The Trip – in its original, uncensored form, will be in stores on March 22nd. For further details, follow the jump.
